No. 2 Oregon Upset by Unranked Arizona

No. 2 Oregon Upset by Unranked Arizona

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(EUGENE, Ore.) -- No. 2 Oregon was handed their first loss of the season Thursday as the unranked Arizona Wildcats defeated the Ducks 31-24.

This is the second straight season the Wildcats have beat the Ducks. 

Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota gave credit to Arizona and the strength of PAC 12 teams after the defeat. 

"They're undefeated," he said. "It's obviously a testament to our conference. If you're not prepared each week, if you're not ready to play, you'll lose."

The loss is a blow to Mariota's chances at winning the Heisman and Oregon's hopes of being invited to college football's first four-team postseason playoff.

Mark Dantonio: ‘Looking Forward to’ Nebraska

Mark Dantonio: ‘Looking Forward to’ Nebraska

Football Texture/iStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- (10) Michigan State will get all they can handle from (19) Nebraska on Saturday night.

The Cornhuskers come into the game at 5-0 and Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio said he’ll make sure his team is ready for a fight.

"[I'm] really looking forward to the opportunity," Dantonio said on Monday. "[We had a] great football game last year [with] a lot riding on the game.  Really one of the reasons you probably come...[to] a place like Michigan State and play in a conference like this is to have these type of games."

Michigan State got the best of Nebraska last year, but Dantonio said Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong has more experience coming into this game.

"This year he's more experienced," Dantonio said of Armstrong. "That's his only loss that he's had on him since he's been a starting quarterback was last year. And I'm sure he wants some of those plays back."

"So, I think he's much more experienced, much more confident as a playmaker, much more in control of the offense and he is the guy this year, whereas last year he was a guy who, initially, it was Martinez and then the other guy and then it was him," he continued. "I think he's the guy in charge and there's confidence that goes along with that and a sense of ownership. I think that's a positive for any football program."

Nebraska is looking to go 6-0 for the first time since 2001.  Head coach Bo Pelini doesn't believe last year's loss will be a factor.

"You can look at it two ways: you can look at it that we gave it to them, or you can look at it from their standpoint that they took it,'' Pelini said. "We need to play better, cleaner, to have a chance to win the football game. I don't want to take away and say we should have won the football game, that's sort of a cop out."

Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. Eastern on ABC.

Les Miles: Excited to Play Auburn

Les Miles: Excited to Play Auburn

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Another chapter of the storied rivalry will resume on Saturday when (5) Auburn will host (15) Louisiana State University.

LSU comes into the game at 4-1 and 0-1 in the SEC.

Tigers head coach Les Miles is looking forward to going up against Auburn. "Anytime that you line up against a top‑5 opponent and you're looking forward to playing your best, this will be great competition," he said Monday. "I don't think there is a person in our building that's not excited about the opportunity to go down and play very well at Auburn."

Auburn sits at 4-0 and the offense is averaging 42.3 points per game.  

Miles said his defense will have to be on their A-game on Saturday. "Cameron Artis-Payne is rushing for 117 yards as a running back," he said of the Auburn offense.  "[They have] a quality group of receivers, D'haquille Williams, [with] 23 receptions, 357 yards and 3 touchdowns lead their receiving core, and, again, they're big and fast and can go get it."

LSU quarterback Brandon Harris will get the start and has completed 73.3 percent of his passes and has thrown six touchdowns so far this season. Miles is confident he can produce in the game.

"There is some 'ad‑lib' to his game that's very, very positive, and he's a guy that is really fast and a guy that can really throw the ball," Miles said of Harris. "You put him in a quality position to extend a play, some good things can happen."

Kickoff from Jordan-Hare Stadium is set for 7 p.m. Eastern.

Minnesota Rolls Past Michigan, 30-14

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(ANN ARBOR, Mich.) -- Golden Gophers senior running back David Cobb rushed for 183 yards on 32 carries as Minnesota (4-1; 1-0 Big Ten) rolled past Michigan (2-3; 0-1 Big Ten) 30-14, in front of 102,926 fans at the Big House on Saturday.

Michigan got on the board first when sophomore running back De’Veon Smith scored on a 10-yard run to give the Wolverines a 7-0 lead with 11:10 left in the second quarter.

Minnesota proceeded to score 30 unanswered points, with the big blow coming late in the third quarter when sophomore quarterback Mitch Leidner connected with sophomore tight-end Maxx Williams on a 1-yard TD pass to give the Golden Gophers a 27-7 lead.

During the game, Michigan fans chanted for the dismissal of head coach Brady Hoke and athletic director Dave Brandon. It’s the first time in the program’s 135-year history that they have ended September with three losses.

(6) Texas A&M Needs Overtime to Beat Arkansas

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- With Johnny Manziel on the sidelines, (6) Texas A&M's Kenny Hill used a little "Johnny Football" magic to help the Aggies avoid a monumental upset on Saturday. Texas A&M (5-0) rallied from a 28-14 deficit to beat Arkansas 35-28 in overtime at AT&T Stadium, home of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys.

Hill threw for 386 yards and four touchdowns in the win, leading a fourth quarter comeback that included two 50-plus yard scoring passes. His first was an 86-yard strike to Edward Pope just three minutes into the final frame. Hill then found Josh Reynolds for a 59-yard touchdown pass, knotting the game at 28-28 with 2:08 to play in regulation.

The Aggies had a chance to win the game in regulation, but let the clock run out when facing fourth down at midfield. They took their shot early in the extra session, scoring on the first play as Hill found Malcome Kennedy for a 25-yard score.

That forced Arkansas (3-2) to go for it on fourth-and-one to keep the game alive, but a defensive stand by Texas A&M sealed the victory. It was the 14th straight conference loss for the Razorbacks who did not score in the final 20:02 of regulation.

Missouri Upsets (13) South Carolina on the Road

Banana Stock/Getty Images(COLUMBIA, S.C.) -- One week after losing a game in the waning moments, the Missouri Tigers used a late drive to knock off No. 13 South Carolina on Saturday. The Tigers (4-1) trailed 20-7 in the fourth but scored twice in the final seven minutes to complete the upset.

"When things got tough, we stayed positive. The defense kept us in it but we stayed totally positive with the offense the whole time," said head coach Gary Pinkel.

After Russell Hansbrough scored in the first quarter to give Missouri a 7-0 lead, the Gamecocks (3-2) held their opponnent of the board until the fourth. Meanwhile, South Carolina reeled off 20 straight points to take a commanding lead late. 

Pharoh Cooper caught a 23-yard pass from Dylan Thompson to give the Gamecocks a 13-point lead with 7:25 remaining. Just 36 seconds later, Maty Mauk and the Tigers completed their first scoring drive of the rally with a Hansbrough one-yard touchdown run. Missouri got the ball back and again watched as Hansbrough bullied his way into the endzone for the go-ahead score.

The running back finished the game with three rushing touchdowns, carrying the ball just 10 times for 43 yards.

Charlie Strong Continues to Clean House at Texas

Brian Bahr/Getty Images(AUSTIN, Texas) -- University of Texas head coach Charlie Strong continued cleaning house Tuesday. Strong dismissed his ninth player of the season when he kicked junior offensive tackle Kennedy Estelle off the squad for violating team rules. Estelle has been suspended for the last three games after starting at left tackle in the team's season opener. This is not the first time Estelle has been suspended while at Texas. He wasn't allowed to play in the Alamo Bowl last season after being ruled academically ineligible. Estelle joins former starters Kendall Sanders and Joe Bergeron, as well as Leroy Scott, Chet Moss, Montrel Meander, Chevoski Collins, Deoundrei Davis and Jalen Overstreet, as players that have been dismissed from the team since March.

Top-Ranked Seminoles Survive in OT

Top-Ranked Seminoles Survive in OT

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) -- Without suspended quarterback Jameis Winston, the top-ranked Florida State Seminoles got some late-game heroics from backup Sean Maguire. The sophomore, making his first career start, led a game-tying drive in the fourth quarter before helping the Seminoles beat No. 22 Clemson, 23-17, in overtime.

Karlos Williams rushed into the endzone from 12 yards out to cap off the comeback, but it was Maguire's 74-yard strike to Rashad Greene that tied the game at 17-17 with six minutes left in regulation.

That touchdown was the high point in an up-and-down game for the sophomore signal caller. Maguire threw a pair of interceptions prior to the score, but did rack up 305 total passing yards. Neither team led by more than a touchdown, but the Tigers (1-2) did score 10 unanswered points in the first half to lead 10-3. 

Florida State did get the ball back late in the fourth, but opted to play for overtime. The Seminoles defense stood tall, stopping Adam Choice on fourth down to give FSU possession. Two plays later, Williams would score to end the game.

ThinkStock(COLUMBIA, Mo.) -- D'Angelo Roberts' three-yard touchdown run with 22 seconds remaining put Indiana ahead 31-27, giving the Hoosiers (2-1) a win over 18th-ranked Missouri on Saturday. It was just the fourth win over an AP-ranked non-conference team in program history.

Neither team held more than a one-score advantage. The Tigers (3-1) scored 10 straight points in the second half, taking a 27-24 lead on Andrew Baggett's 40-yard field goal. However, the reigning Southeastern Conference West champions couldn't hold off the offense of the Hoosiers.

Indiana went 75 yards in just six plays to pull off the upset. Tevin Coleman rushed for 132 total yards, including a 44-yard scamper that set up the winning score. 

"It was a really big win," said Coleman, who missed the final 20 minutes of the first half with cramps. "We came out here with fire. We played until the end."

Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk tossed for 326 yards and two scores to pace the Tigers, while Russell Hansbrough ran for 119 yards.

Football Texture/iStockphoto(BATON ROUGE, La.) -- Mississippi State jumped out to a 17-0 lead over eighth-ranked Louisiana State University (LSU), but had to hold on in the fourth quarter for a 34-29 win. It was the Bulldogs' first victory over LSU since 1999, and their first in Baton Rouge since 1991.

"I probably aged seven to 10 years in the final three minutes of the game," said Mississippi State (4-0) head coach Dan Mullen. "We are trying to build a program and I'll take it. I guess everybody can now write now I have beaten LSU and Alabama once during my career."

Quarterback Dak Prescott, a Louisiana native, controlled tempo through the first three quarters. His 56-yard touchdown run put the Bulldogs up 24-10, while his pass to Jameon Lewis made it a 21-point Bulldog lead.

Trailing 31-10 heading into the fourth quarter, LSU (3-1) stormed back to score 19 unanswered points and threaten to deny the Bulldogs an upset. Brandon Harris found Malachi Dupre for a 31-yard touchdown pass that made it a 34-22 ballgame with less than two minutes remaining. The Tigers then recovered an onside kick, setting up another Harris-Dupre connection to close the gap to five.

LSU got one last chance, holding possession in the final seconds. A last-ditch heave to the endzone was picked off by Will Redmond.

Prescott finished the game with 268 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns, adding another score on the ground.

Jameis Winston’s Suspension Increased

Jameis Winston’s Suspension Increased

Grant Halverson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Citing new findings in their investigation to his sexual and profane outburst at a student union meeting, Florida State announced late Friday they were suspending quarterback Jameis Winston for the full game against No. 22 Clemson on Saturday. Winston had originally been suspended for only the first half.

"Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday's incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night," interim Florida State president Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox said in a joint statement.

Winston, the reigning Heisman trophy winner, was seen shouting an obscene sexual phrase on campus earlier in the week. The top ranked Seminoles will start sophomore Sean Maguire against the Tigers. Maguire has completed 12 of 26 career passes while at Florida State.

Winston will also undergo "internal discipline" regarding this matter.

"As the university's most visible ambassadors, student-athletes at Florida State are expected to uphold at all times high standards of integrity and behavior that reflect well upon themselves, their families, coaches, teammates, the Department of Athletics and Florida State University," FSU's joint statement said. "Student-athletes are expected to act in a way that reflects dignity and respect for others."

Winston allegedly stood on a table and began to shout obscenities that were mimicking a popular video on the Internet.

"First of all, I want to apologize to the university, my coaches and to my teammates," Winston said. "I'm not a 'me' person, but in that situation, it was a selfish act, and that's not how you do things around here.

"I want to apologize to my teammates because I have now made a selfish act for them. That's all," he concluded.

Hundley Goes Down But Neuheisal Steps Up to Lead (12) UCLA to Win

Football Texture/iStock Photo(ARLINGTON, Texas) --When star quarterback Brett Hundley left the game in the first quarter with a injured left elbow it was easy to think UCLA was in trouble. But backup Jerry Neuheisal put all doubts to rest by completing 23 of 30 passes for 178 yards and two touchdowns, including the eventual game-winner with three minutes to play, as the No. 12 Bruins nip Texas 20-17 Saturday.

With UCLA down by four with just over three minutes to play, Neuheisal, who is the son of former UCLA coach Rick Neuheisal, completed a 33-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Payton to seal the win.

"My first thought was excitement for Jerry Neuheisel. This kid is everything that's right about college football and about UCLA," UCLA head coach Jim Mora said. "I just thought, `Wow. You couldn't write a better script than this right here. His dad was a great player here. For him to come to Texas and bringing his team from behind to get a win. It's incredible. It's awesome."

Tyrone Swoopes completed 24 of 34 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns for Texas (1-2).

JP Wilson/Replay Photos via Getty Images (NORMAN, Okla.) -- Oklahoma's defense created three turnovers and held Tennessee to 313 total yards to lead the No. 11 Sooners past the Volunteers 34-10 Saturday night. Oklahoma is now 3-0 as it heads into Big 12 play.

"I don't feel that we've done much yet," Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said. "I've got all the respect in the world for Tennessee. I'm just saying it's only three games. We've got a long year. We've got to keep getting better." Oklahoma jumped out to an early 13-0 lead before Tennessee scored on a Justin Worley 40-yard touchdown pass to Josh Smith. But Keith Ford ran in an 11-yard touchdown at the end of the second quarter to give the Sooners a 20-7 lead at halftime. Cornerback Julian Wilson essentially sealed the game for Oklahoma in the fourth quarter when he intercepted a Worley pass and returned it 100 yards for a touchdown. Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight accounted for two touchdowns, one rushing and one passing, while completing 20 of 33 passes for 308 yards.

Worley completed 21 of 40 passes for 201 yards, but threw two interceptions and fumbled once for Tennessee (2-1) in the loss.

Boston College Knocks Off (9) USC

Football Texture/iStockphoto(CHESTNUT HILL, Mass.) -- An emotional night for Boston College ended with a historic upset over No. 9 USC on Saturday night. The Eagles honored former lacrosse player Welles Crowther, who passed away in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, by wearing red bandanas and toppling the Trojans, 37-31, at home.

"The red bandanna game meant a lot. We talked a lot about Welles Crowther; we talked a lot about who he was and what it takes to be a BC man," said head coach Steve Addazio. "Our guys dug deep on this. This was a great win."

The Trojans (2-1) jumped out to a 10-0 lead after one quarter and eventually led 17-6 just one minute into the second. However, the Eagles (2-1) scored the next 24 points, pounding out multiple big plays on the ground. Sherman Alston's 54-yard run late in the half gave Boston College a 20-17 halftime advantage.

Senior quarterback Tyler Murphy rushed for 191 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown scamper in the fourth that sealed the deal. In total, Boston College rushed for 452 yards against the Trojans. It was the first time since 2002, and the fifth time overall, that the Eagles beat a top-10 opponent while being unranked themselves.
